scary day!

So I got to work this morning and at 645am felt a warm gush and sure enough I was bleeding! I had to wait for my boss to get to my job site until 9am! My husband left work and took me to the ER. They did a beta and the result was 7728. They also did an ultrasound but were unable to find a heartbeat! I am praying that its just too early. The doc said my cervix was closed so thats a plus! I am really nervous that we are going to lose this baby! Im on bedrest for the next 24 hrs and I have to go back on monday for another beta. At this current moment I am just spotting brown. Please send some sticky vibes my way!

I think things are probably okay sweetie. Usually a heartbeat can't be seen until at least 6 weeks and I know a lot of people who didn't even see one then and waited until 7 or 8 before they could see it. Since you're so early I bet everything is okay. I'd definitely take it easy and I'll be thinking about you and keeping fingers crossed, but my guess is that it was just too early for the hb. There are lots of reasons for spotting in early pregnancy. Has it all been brown or was it red this morning? Giant hugs to you sweetie!

Try not to worry! Bleeding in early pregnancy is common, but so scary! All you would see right now is a sac, so that's a good thing!
Hang in there and let us know what the docs say!

T&P your way. I agree with Leah tho. I had a similar episode with DD. And so I thought it too was the end. Went in a few days later and there was her little heart beating away. Think positive!

With DS2 I had an early u/s at 5 weeks and the tech couldn't see ANYTHING! Then at 6 weeks there was a little fluttering heart Smile

Good luck and KUP!

OMG Amber how scary! I agree, it's probably too early to hear a heartbeat. Good news that your cervix is closed. I had some light brown spotting earlier this evening and I was a nervous wreck. I'm doing better knowing that it's common but it really doesn't make you stop worrying.

Sending you TONS of sticky vibes!! Maybe that little bean is digging in some deep roots Smile
